Wide open and firing on all cylinders, this cuvèe is full of red citrus and lemon cream. A bit of sweet, juicy peach emerges as it warms, leading into a biting, zesty finish. The palate shows a full array of flavors and is very enjoyable right now, but you can cellar it too - this will continue to drink well over the next five to ten years.
This is a new, single-vineyard release from a ½ ha plot in Villers-Marmery that Godmé has always considered to be their best vineyard. This is a creamy, full-bodied Chardonnay that needs a lot more time in the bottle to fully express itself, but when it does, watch out. Orange cream, minerals, dough, apples, and honeysuckle appear in this potential-packed wine that finishes off with piercing minerality. Be on the lookout for its release and try a bottle or two, but I suggest letting most of your purchases age.
